Investigation of Turbocirculator for Target, a 1000-Mw(e) Reactor: Summary Report

Description: The present study was undertaken for the purpose of determining the feasibility, establishing the required development program, and estimating the cost of a turbocirculator to provide the pumping power for a 1000-Mw(e) high-temperature gas-cooled reactor power plant as part of the TARGET program. This necessitated preliminary design of the turbocirculator in conjunction with the reactor power plant as well as the investigation of methods for the optimization of the turbocirculator and for its development. This study was carried out in sufficient detail to fix the methods required to resolve the problems that would be encountered during the course of a prototype program resulting in a turbocirculator for the TARGET power plant.
